Hi

Since yesterday (31/12) I have been getting a message on my IE google page such :angry:which says that I am infected. I have read up on this and believe it is the real-av problem. However when I try to follow the removal instructions I find that I can not open any new down loaded programs. I downloaded mbam-setupexe but when I try to run it I get loads of application errors. I have spybot and adaware already downloaded but when I try to run them I am getting application errors. Installed on the PC is AVG 8 but this does not seem to see the problem.

The errors I getwhen openining programs are: Exception Einvalid Op in module mbam-setup.tmp at 778500FS
Invalid floating point operation.

I also noticed task manager is not working. It says : Task Manager has been disabled by yor administrator. Please help

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using?

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

I have tried changing the exe file but can't. There seems to be no way to do this.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
